CEDARS helps children who have been abused, neglected, and homeless achieve safety, stability, and enduring family relationships.
When parents struggle and families become fragile, it is the children that often pay the highest price. Job loss, financial stress, illness, drug use, or violence in the home can lead to terrible situations of neglect or even abuse of children.
But you can change that pattern.
When you donate, you give hope to children who often feel hopeless. With your help, CEDARS can provide children with safe shelter, healing, and an opportunity to find an enduring family relationship.
Each year, CEDARS provides a safe, secure place for 2,500 children and youth.
CEDARS respects our donors’ generosity. We are careful to use your gifts sensibly. In the last fiscal year, 86 cents of every dollar you donated provided services for our children. Only 14 cents of that dollar supported administrative and fundraising costs.
CEDARS has been recognized by the American Institute on Philanthropy and the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance for financial and organizational accountability. When you donate to CEDARS, you can trust that we’ll invest your resources wisely.
